Mission Statement

It is the duty of the Guernsey County Prosecutor to seek justice. Justice is not an arbitrary exercise of the law, but rather a thoughtful review of the relevant facts, an application of the appropriate law, and the efficient progress toward an outcome that seeks to address the problem at hand, as well as, address the underlying root. In carrying out this duty, I and my staff handle a wide variety of responsibilities.

Through the Criminal Division we seek to uphold the law, support the efforts of law enforcement, and to protect our citizens.

Through the Civil Division, we represent every county elected official (when acting in their official capacity), every county department, every county board, as well as all 19 townships.

My office works closely with local victim services organizations, including our own, Victim Advocacy Program, to ensure the victims’ voices are involved in the trial process and to connect victims with appropriate services and support. 

It is my honor  to serve as Guernsey County’s Prosecuting Attorney. I and my staff promise to carry out all of our duties with excellence and integrity.
